Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are one of the hottest wedding trends right now and there couldn't be a better time to think about warm, tropical destinations than today. As I look out my window, I see the snow falling for the third straight day, so I hope that these amazing hot spots brighten your spirits! A lot of people tend to associate destination weddings with one particular region of the world...the Caribbean! This isn't always the case, as more and more locations around the world are becoming the place to get married. I want to show everyone that there are truly amazing places that you never may have thought of before...some, may even be closer than you think! Each day this week I will feature several destinations that are truly spectacular in my opinion! Today, I'm going to focus my attention on The Caribbean.

I. Tuesday's Destination Hot Spot ~ The Caribbean

A. The Bahamas ~ Atlantis
The Atlantis hotel located in Nassau offers two main wedding packages: The Mystical Wedding package that includes 10 + rooms or The Treasured Wedding package for 9 rooms or less. The Mystical Wedding is for larger events where the bride and groom can customize their wedding details...much like you would if you were having your wedding right here in town. An on site wedding coordinator is available and included in the package cost to help with vendor selections. The Treasured Wedding is tailored for more intimate gatherings and includes a wedding cake and champagne reception for guests. However, for an additional cost the couple along with their guests, may upgrade to dine at one of their on-site restaurants from a pre-selected menu. This package also includes an on site wedding coordinator.

**New passport requirements state that all travelers entering the Bahamas now must have a passport. For more information regarding Bahamian law and marriage license information, visit their website: http://www.atlantis.com/groups/weddings.aspx

The Westin St. John Resort is located in St. John, Virgin Islands. The island is breathtaking and the best part is the resort is located on 1,200 feet of private beaches. Couples can choose from a variety of ceremony locations, including indoor and outdoor. Everything from the menu to the wedding cake can also be customized...after all, it is YOUR wedding day! Their philosophy is to make every event personal and memorable. For more information, here is a link directly to their wedding website: The Westin.
Oh, and by the way it's 79 degrees in St. John right now on this cold January day! =)

Hope you enjoyed these locations...check back tomorrow as I explore destinations in Mexico! Stay warm!!
